Wolverine State Cucurbita Smiles


Brewed by Wolverine State Brewing Company
Ann Arbor, Michigan USA
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable | Ratings: 4 | Autumn Seasonal | Alcohol: 9%
This beer uses a very cool recipe of grains that includes oats, biscuit malt and a very dark crystal malt that gives the beer its unique burnt-orange hue. We then use 65 pounds of 100% pure pumpkin puree and 50 pounds of brown sugar right in the boil kettle. Coupled with nutmeg and our special touch of Saigon Cinnamon (think “Big Red” chewing gum) we create a pumpkin pie flavor. With a lingering kiss of real vanilla beans for dry hopping, we deem this beer ready only when the vanilla gives its special character to the finished beer.
